At the time I was staying at James and Monica's place with a friend. They weren't there themselfs. Our host was Carlotta who was very friendly. The appartment is very conveniently located and is only 20 minutes from the city centre. We had a lovely stay and besides sometimes having difficulty contacting our host it was very nice.

The flat was beautiful and very central. It was a short walk to get into the center. The flat was right on the Meadows, which is very convenient if the sun is out.

James & Monica are so kind. Their house is near The Meadows so very beautiful and peaceful. There is convenient for transportation and you can walk to The Royal Mile. I liked to stay in Edinburgh for the last week of their house. Monica your coffee is dilicious. Thank you~^^

A lovely homely flat located right around the corner from the meadows. The location was perfect, and James and Monica were always helpful and allowed me to make myself at home. Would highly recommend to anyone considering spending a few days/weeks in Edinburgh - I stayed just over two weeks to adjust to city living, and I'm glad I spent it there.

It was a great place, just as promised. Fantastic location, just a short, pretty walk through the Meadows to the Fringe, but a very quiet and peaceful area. The room was comfy and well appointed, and the host very extremely gracious, laid back and helpful. I would absolutely stay with them next time I am in Edinburgh.
